Angry at God?

I've met a few women, lately, who are feeling angry toward God. After Googling "angry at God" I found out that there are many people feeling this way and expressing it on the Internet.

My suggestion is to call people who know what they are talking about. The Hope for the Heart Call Center has counselors available 24 hours a day to receive your call. Tell them that you are angry with God. They will listen and care and offer you hope. 1-800-488-HOPE (4673). It's Free.

This life that we live on earth is not how God intended it to be. When sin entered, because of Satan, the perfect plan got all messed up. And it won't be perfect again, until heaven. God allows bad things to happen, but he also gives many blessings. I wonder how much tragedy He spares us from experiencing. It's easy for us humans to focus on sufferings. We tend to forget about the undeserved blessings that we receive.

I don't fully understand God or His ways. But, I have chosen to trust Him despite the bad things in my life. I've had my share of sorrows, and I expect many more in the future. My favorite song is Blessed Be Your Name. It's a song about Praising God when life is good and Praising Him when life is bad. It's about recognizing that He gives blessings and He takes them away. It's about choosing to always say - "Blessed Be Your Name", no matter what the circumstance.

Above is a YouTube video of this song. Here are the lyrics to Blessed Be Your Name.

thanks so much for this beautiful post. It was really well written and perfect. I wish more people could see it this way. God is not a punishing God. We are His children. Heirs to His kingdom. He sent His Son to earth to save us from suffering. Our pain can and will be swallowed up in Him because He was willing to submit to His Father's will. We should do the same.

Hope you have a great day. Thanks!

That is soooo true, it's hard living life here on earth, and being perfecting through our faith isn't easy either! I love that song. Thanks for sharing (and thanks for stopping by my blog!)

Hi ya Shari, thanks for stopping by.

Yes, blessed be the name of the Lord. We DO have a choice, don't we? I've discovered there's peace when I continue to trust, even when life doesn't make sense. (My first husband died in a car accident when my son was nine-months-old.) Yes, still I will praise. Jesus is my Savior... when all else looks dim, that is a fact that keeps me going. He gave His life so I could live with Him forever. What more could He give? Praise Him we have a hope for today and oh what a future to look forward to...

P.S. I love that song too :)

Hey Shari - great post. As someone who for years lived life hurt and angry at God, I have to say that no one ever explained to me that this world is not how God intended it to be or about the role of the enemy and sin in suffering. Once I stumbled upon that realization, so much of the anger began to fall away. That simple truth is huge! I pray that your post will touch some of those people that are still struggling with anger at God. God's peace!
